Capcom: Novelty of fighting game re-releases wearing off

After a slew of high-def fighting game re-releases on modern consoles -- recently, Darkstalkers Resurrection -- you might be wondering which properties Capcom will turn to next. I'm sure there's an individual title you'd love to see get support from the publisher. "Sadly, I think we've probably run the course of feasible titles here given the droppoff we've seen in sales with each new introduction," Capcom senior VP Christian Svensson wrote in a forum post.

"It seems the novelty of such projects is wearing off even within just the fighting game community based upon the sales data of our last two launches," he continued. "That said, we have been quite prolific in these areas (despite the assertion above that we haven't) and it's probably time for us to slow down anyway." Now there's something you don't hear every day.

"So in short, what we can bring to you in these forms [straight re-release, re-release with updates, or digital release of current disc-based game], we are doing so," said Svensson. "That doesn't mean EVERYTHING will show up and to set expectations, I think you should prepare yourself that not every fighting game we've made will receive even one of these treatments."
